The unstretched finished foot length of these slippers is 6½ (7¼, 7¾, 8¼ )”/ 16.5 (18.5, 19.5, 21)cm. XS, S, M, and L sizes stretch to fit women’s US shoe sizes 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11. Shown in Size S.
The slipper begins by using Judy’s Magic Cast On to create a round of stitches that run perpendicularly down the sole of the foot. Increases are introduced for shaping around the foot. A cable decrease removes stitches for shaping at the ankle, which is finished with i-cord and the embellishment of your choice.
Judy’s Magic Cast On might seem a little intimidating if you haven’t tried it before. However, learning this technique can open a world of possibilities in your knitting, particularly for toe up socks. If it’s new to you, please look online as there is a wealth of videos and tutorials online that helpfully explain the process.
